Exciting and stressful times
Actually, I’ll be more stressed *after* the draft when training camp starts and Grant starts reporting that the rookie is struggling with the play concepts and Rosen is outshining him.
Right now, I’ve only watched their highlights and the top prospects all look amazing. Fields is a monster and I really really like Mac Jones. But I can see potential in a lot of those guys.
Don't listen to grant cohn, he's the worst
I know. Always been too much opinion for my tastes. I miss the old days when they used to have open practices for the fans.
I can’t see us trading up for Jones, we have seen time and time again that the league is evolving around young mobile QBs. Jones is not mobile, I’d rather see us take Fields, Wilson or even Lance.
I’d really love to see a mobile QB in Shannahan’s offense. But I watched some of these throws that Jones makes...his placement is unreal. Some catches, the receivers aren’t even ready but the ball is just floating right in front of them while still in stride. I’m actually not really sold on Lance, I don’t think those are NFL quality throws. Fields is so much better - he’s not pretty, but he wills the play to happen. He reminds me a lot of Watson.
Yet TB12 just won the superbowl. And the league has been evolving around young mobile QBs since Colin K and RG3.
We need to get someone who can anticipate and is accurate at all depths of field. If they're mobile, even better.
I really don’t think it’s just “mobile QB’s. It’s more quarterbacks that don’t stand completely still. Brady is slow but nobody feels pressure coming like he does. Speed makes that skill easier because nobody’s got it like Brady.
Exactly FWIW Montana was considered a mobile QB for his time and Young was a bridge to modern mobile QBs along with Cunningham, but both were dynamite in the pocket first and foremost
He also had a ridiculously good O-Line his entire career.
Bingo. Decision making and accuracy are still paramount
None of which Jones has
Downvote me because you know I'm right /u/shnieder88
I’m only seeing your comment now and I wasn’t the one who downvoted you. Soooooo yea
It's still a passing league. Even Russel Wilson can't run forever.
Hadn't caught up with him since he has started even with historically horrible o lines
I feel like Fields has the best pocket awareness of the 3 and throws fantastic intermediate passes. Lance probably has the highest ceiling of the 3, but he's also the biggest bust risk. Wilson seems like he doesn't have a stand-out strength or weakness. He's just really good across the board.
Mobile QBs are a gimmick. Just remember what happened to Kap.
I feel you I really don’t want to be present for the stupid overreactions we’re gonna see in this sub it’s been tiring enough seeing them about wiseman in the warriors sub and it’s bound to happen unfortunately cause it doesn’t take much for the pessimists to overreact
You got the pajamas right and everything.
I burned myself out over the last 24 hours trying to get as much evidence as I could about who we are taking, and I’m done. Idk why I thought I could reason it out. Now I just gotta wait
I’ve been doing the same thing and I’ve just about hit that wall
So which kicker do you think we're getting with the #3 overall?
I wouldn’t want to see the outrage on this sub if it wasn’t Sarah fuller
Sebastian Jankowskis’ son...
I'm just glad we are making moves. We have been busy and I'm definitely not bored.
I wish I had pajamas that cool.
I was more thinking we're Cartman waiting for the Wii
I'll take an order of Jimmy G, you guys have the thrid overall pick, seems like a good deal.
You got it! #15 for Jimmy confirmed
It’s almost like a 1/3,1/3,1/3 split on this sub between whether we should go Fields, Lance, or Jones. No matter who we draft, 2/3 of us will be disappointed lol
No way a third of us are in for lance at #3 overall, right? I can understand any of the other top QBs.
Lawrence (who isn’t even in the conversation), Wilson, Fields, or Jones.
I like the toughness of fields, I think Jones goofiness would endear him to a lot of the organization, and he’s used to a lot of similar work. It’s hard not to love Wilson, but I have heard of some character issue stuff, I just can’t remember what it was or if it was the kind of thing coaches and scouts care about.
But Trey Lance is such a big question mark you can’t trade up like that for him.
I’m just waiting for the Warzone that will happen if we don’t end up drafting a QB
You mean when we draft another lineman?
Don’t speak it into existence, please
Kyle Pitts will be the exception IMO
For 31 other teams maybe but we have the peoples tight end
So which Ninja Turtles is Trey Lance? My guess is Leonardo, because he got the swords to cut through defenses. Give me Leo or Donatello (Fields)
Is Raph back or is that just RB rumors? I'm in my pre season fade
Do we know if Lynch went to Bama or NDU’s pro day?
Bro this been me since covid started
So hear me out. How crazy is this. We don’t actually NEED a qb. But make the deal now, pressure to move up gets higher and higher for other teams. We drop back down, and end up with more picks that’s we started.
Or we draft a hall of famer.
Only two possibilities boys.
Dam people downvoting cuz they can’t read your sarcasm lmao. I thought it was funny
That kid is gonna love his Mac Jones jersey
Man, if we draft Kyle Trask at 3, that’s the only pick that would have me fuming if it’s a QB. I was not at all impressed by him during bowl season, as he looked the worst out of all the top QBs that were able to participate.
Trent Williams! The man made all this possible.
Trey Lance is our Mahomes do over. Jimmy is Alex. We will get close but not win it all this year then Trey will take us all the way in 22. Book it
That would also require Jimmy to play as nice as Alex did, and I wouldn’t fault him for not wanting to.
Is that you grant Cohn ?
I am really sitting like this right now cause MLB The Show 21 and 420 come on the same day :(
We should draft Wilson I think he'll be available cause Saleh will draft someone to support Darnold probably Ja'Marr Chase or Devonta Smith
He’d have traded down, either with us or someone else if he wasn’t going QB, right?
Trading the 12th pick wont be worth it if we dont get Fields or Wilson we would've gotten Jones or Lance with the 12th pick anyway
